I chose these three embedded topics because I am interested in Albany pre and post revolutionary war, and pre civil war era. I am interested in how Albany contributed during the Revolutionary war, politically and economically, how Albany itself was affected by the Revolutionary war, and afterwards. I am interested in how Albany would influence politics in the newly independent America, and the grounds it would serve for helping build a strong nation united under one government. I am also interested in why Albany was ultimately named the state capital of New York.
